Russian River/ Sierra Nevada Brux

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color with a modest head that fades rather quickly leaving lace behind

Smell: Bready, with orchard fruit (apples, pears and peaches) with a bit of barnyard funk

Taste: Opens with a bready character that persists and grape flavors add tartness; in the background, the orchard fruit adds another angle. The funkier flavors arrive and the Brett dries everything out in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: Clearly an entry point to Brett beers for the uninitiated, this beer brings a fair bit of complexity, as well; it will be interesting to see how this develops

Serving type: bottle
